Which bids do you NOT agree?
Disagree with double of 4N. No reason to help them scramble (although they didnt quite take advantage as it went). Pass then double is my choice. 4 and 4N automatic, 5 very bad (panic) - should obv pass.
Rohit Gupta's bidding problem: AQJT AKQ7 JT853 ---
Because 2 doesn't show anything about hearts, it is fourth suit forcing. 2 then spades shows a strong raise but still not anything about hearts.
Yuan Shen's bidding problem: AJ976 A9 A96 A72
We play 4NT keycard and 5 as an art slam try in diamonds. In my system I would bid 5.
ATB: Missed slam
N's bidding is not logical to me. 3 is NF. So when partner muster up 3NT, 4 does not mean that he is now too strong to pass, but that his hand is not notrumpish, ie shape, bad suit etc.
How to play 6 Diamonds?
Finesse. If we finess into stiff K we are dead, but Kxx onside is 3 times as likely. So if we play A first and find Kxx onside, we cant afford to go down more than 1/3 each time or we are better off finessing. Spades not 3-3 is ...
Giovanni Bobbio's bidding problem: --- 53 KJ97652 K983
6C. I think 5N is choice of slams with spades also. X of a preempt should not be completely onesuited, so pass is out. It is 6C or 6D. I try 6C, because with five clubs I would likely have bid 4N, not 5D.
Seeding in the World Bridge Games
Seeding an event like this (that is very different from the Rosenblum) should be based on country merits only, not players' MP or the like. The good reasons for this have already been posted. It might be difficult to devise a good seeding point system for countries since some zones ...
Seeding in the World Bridge Games
I was a bit disappointed reading the BridgeWinners MPs analysis above, not even a (*) about tainted MPs of team Monaco (and maybe other teams as well, I don't know but the possible teams with tainted MPs are all in Group A&B). I thought it was BW opinion that ...
Should this be disclosed?
What if the actual players don't know that "only" 40% af BW members would double on this hand? Should we place the onus on the bidders to disclose a diverging style they might not know is diverging? If they knew to hit the middle of the fairway on every ...
Alert "to be polite"?
Personally I find it more useful, when opponents DONT alert small subtle things about a natural call. It makes it a lot easier to follow a basically natural auction. I can ask about the meaning of the bids when appropriate, that is not a problem. They should then, of course ...
